    2. I loved this book It s funny but not fluffy, smart but not academic, and full of interesting characters and details A slightly geeky but very endearing grad student gets involved with a project to disprove the talents of various psychics in the 1920s The story centers around his part in the investigation of a young and pretty medium who he thinks might be in danger, but from what, he doesn t know He attempts to become the romantic hero of her complicated life, even though he knows she may be a f [...]


    3. Ok, don t judge a book by it s price I found this on a sale table at Books Inc and thought, Ok, for five bucks I ll bite the subject matter was just a little unbelievable for me, I didn t think I d be able to suspend disbelief enough that I would have bought the book for full price Then I got home and started to read and flew through it I needed to read something well written but not too self serious this fit the bill The characters are interesting and the topic Spiritualism in the 1930 s also e [...]


    4. In the 1920 s, Spiritualism was a huge interest of much of the public The magazine Scientific American is offering a 5,000 prize to anyone who can prove they have supernatural powers and or can contact the dead Martin Finch, a student at Harvard, gets drafted into the judging of the competition.Set in Prohibition era Philadelphia, this is a tale of mysticism, belief, strange happenings, and love Is society woman Mina an actual psychic Is she faking it all, or maybe mentally ill Is her husband in [...]


    5. It wasn t exactly love this thing I felt for this book, because as Gangemi said, and I quote, love was symphonic feeling not this anxious chamber piece playing in my inner ear at all hours of the day and night.Ha ha, that wasn t very good introduction, but anyway, let s carry on.I consider this book a science fiction It is based on psychology and solving mysteries behind unexplained happenings, like what we normal people refer to as Magic Now I ll skip the first few pages of the book and go dir [...]


    6. Fun book that can be read in an afternoon, but the jacket blurbs about the author being in the same vein as Caleb Carr s the Alienist or EL Doctrow s Ragtime are overblown I think what separates this book from the Alienist and I ve noticed the same thing in a lot of other historically inspired fiction is that Carr is both a historian and a writer, so he doesn t let the historical facts and elements get in the way of the narrative or characters Whereas in this book and some others I ve read, like [...]


    7. My gosh, I loved reading this To be honest, I didn t know what to expect from it, as it had been sitting on my shelf for years without being given a second glance I m sorry I overlooked you for so long, Inamorata Just because you were the randomly selected third book in a 3 for 10 deal, doesn t mean you aren t worthy of attention In fact, I don t even remember what the other two books were The 1920s have always seemed like an extremely cool decade to me, at least through the lens of American fic [...]


    8. I can t wrap my head around the probable solutions to all of the unanswered questions within this book, and I can t for the life of me determine if that s the way Joseph Gangemi intended it or not Or is this questioning truly what he intended all along I do feel very much like Finch, trying to debunk his story So meta Either way, an entertaining read I do wish it was a bit, well, scarier, but I guess that wasn t the point of the novel Undoubtedly my favorite thing about Inamorata was its histori [...]




    9. There is another book, Gabriel Brownstein s The Man From Beyond , which also looks at Margery, a medium discovered by Arthur Conan Doyle Margery was actually one Mina Crandon in real life, and Conan Doyle would sing her praises to anyone who would listen Also in real life, a team of investigators from Scientific American which had offered a 5000 prize to anyone who could produce some psychic phenonmena 2,500 to the first person who produces a psychic photograph under its test conditions and 2,50 [...]


    10. One thing I recently learned recently meaning in the last 30 seconds is that in 2006 Johnny Depp bought the rights to make this book into a movie And since I am and will always be a staunch supporter of anything Johnny Depp, that makes me look slightly favorably at this book Slightly.The weird thing about this book is that the medium who it revolves around is based off of a real woman, a woman who is so completely different from her fictional counterpart in Inamorata as to be unrecognizable So [...]


    11. INAMORATA G Joseph Gangemi 1st book Historical In 1922, Scientific American offers five thousand dollars for evidence of conclusive psychic manifestations Inspired by this real life event, Inamorata follows Martin Finch, a twenty three year old Harvard graduate student and member of Scientific American s investigative committee, on the case of a lifetime an attempt to determine whether Mina Crawley, a beautiful Philadelphia socialite, is able to contact the spirit realm In the tiny upstairs room [...]


    12. This book is set in the 1920 s, during the peak of the Spiritualism movement It is upon this backdrop that Harvard graduate, Martin Finch, gets the unexpected opportunity to assist in the Scientific American investigation into the psychic powers of self proclaimed mediums and Spiritulists At first he rises to the challenge and exposes several fraudulent psychics using logic and scientific reasoning However, the investigation into the paranormal powers of society psychic Mina Crawley presents a f [...]


    13. How much did I love this book I bought it because it looked pretty black cover with green bird , and the description sounded interesting, but from the first moment on I was hooked The story is simple It is the 1920s, and Spiritualism is all the rage Twenty three year old Harvard graduate Martin Finch is sent by the Scientific American on the investigative opportunity of a lifetime an examination of the powers of Philadelphia society psychic Mina Crawley What a great story And great writing This [...]


    14. This quick and fast paced book is filled with romance, the 1920s and spiritualism This takes place during the same time period as Dreamland, and the two briefly overlap in subject matter, although this book focuses on the upper academic crowd and is therefore lighter in nature and can focus intently on the supernatural rather than the struggles of the all too natural life.The main character is part of a team sent out to prove or disprove the existence of spirits and mediums, and he finds both a [...]


    15. This novel started out strong but ultimately left me a bit cold Martin Finch, a young grad student at Harvard, assists his mentor and others in testing psychics and mediums for Scientific American The first few are easily debunked, but then they meet Mina Crawley, whose alleged ability to manifest the spirit of her dead brother is less easily shown to be fraud Martin is attracted to Mina in spite of himself, even as he discovers an increasingly complex web of deceit surrounding Mina and her powe [...]


    16. I love love loved this book First of all, it takes place in Philadelphia in the 1920s, which is just a great setting This book had me in a complete trance I was totally obsessed with it and would open it up to read the second I got home from work, the moment I woke up on weekend, I d be thinking about it whenever I wasn t reading it even crept into my dreams It was one of those books where the minute you finish reading it, you just want to flip back to page one and start all over again This is J [...]


    17. An interesting concept is restrained by poorly developed characters and unpolished writing Attempting to use the first person challenges many authors, and Gangemi is no exception the protagonist Finch is as indistinct at the end of the book as he is at the beginning Additionally, the limitations of the perspective are often ignored as the author uses the protagonist to present the reader with historical fact dumps about which Finch would have been unaware or indifferent Still, a fast, mildly ent [...]


    18. Adding an ambiguous ending to an otherwise cookie cutter genre piece does not make it high art Like at the end of The Cutting Edge we re supposed to believe that it doesn t matter if they win or lose, it s that they fell in love and skated their best I m sorry, but have you seen the rest of the movie Of course Inamorata is no The Cutting Edge and its ambiguous ending feels even out of place and disappointing I wade through a lot of hint dropping, wooden dialogue and one dimensional characteriza [...]


    19. Supernatural phenomena, Romance, mystery, death, and spiritualism This book by Joseph Gangemi was a fun read From the point of view of a struggling Harvard student we get to explore the worlds reaction to the super normal The characters in this novel were fun to get to know, if they were at the least, fairly flat The ending left me in wanting, I feel that there was a lot that could have been said for mina s child, but I feel that the author did a good job of answering any questions in the epilog [...]


    20. This wasn t the best read everbut it was a good first novel for the author I love historical fiction, and this didn t dissapoint from that standpoint.The writing is very intellectual lots of fifty cent words, which is fitting since it s written in first person from the perspective of a Harvard doctoral candidate.A bit of fun readingif you like mystery and a bit of the paranormal It delves into the Spiritualist movement in the 1920s that was so popular with every house holding seances.There are s [...]


    21. Read this novel set in the 1920 s during Prohibition about the rise of Spiritualism in some of the nation s most famous universities It follows the story of a Harvard graduate student working on a committee trying to find debunk reports of paranormal activity The characters could have been better established and had differant names 3 of the main characters were Finch, Flynn and Fox , but it was an easy read and an interesting description of the time period where a lot of drinking went on, despit [...]


    22. I enjoyed this book It was light and amusing with the allure of a historical novel It had some science fiction as well but it was also a romance novel It took place in 1920s Philadelphia at a time when many people were interested in the paranormal and just as many were interested in disproving them This book centers around a group that set out to do just that.It is a nice first novel but I found it start to go adrift towards the end A good summertime, light read.


    23. USA setting An investigation into the powers of a 1920 s Philadelphia society psychic Inamorata is part mystery, historical fiction and love story It illuminates the 1920 s feverish obsession with the paranormal I found this book on the sale table at our book store here in canada Inamorata provided some good vocab expansion, I liked the historic setting and it gave a good bit of info on several topics I sure got my moneys worth for a little 4.99 book.


    24. Ciertamente cre que ser a otra cosa Me intrig al principio, pero luego la trama se me hizo demasiado cansina y lo termin por eso de no dejar un libro a medias Nunca llegu a comprender del todo a los personajes, tampoco supe al final cu l fue el resultado, si era real o fingido SUPONGO que el escritor tuvo la intenci n de que el lector sacara sus propias conclusiones , a las que yo, por desgracia, nunca llegu.No lo recomiendo a menos que tengan deseos de aburrirse.


    25. I loved this book The writing flowed and the subject intrigued me It was such wonderful prose and I read it in 2 days I just could not put it down I am now reading other books on mesmerism and spiritualism It is a great way to start the study of both I like to read a fiction book on subjects and then read the history of it This book definitely got me interested The ending was sad though, but necessary Not every story has a rosy ending One question, if not Walter, who was that


    26. I was impressed with Gagemi s debut novel, Inamorata He is able to instill suspense, humor, and history into each chapter Not to mention the book is witty and to the point If you are looking for a book with intricate description of setting and characters this is not the book for you Gangemi does a fantastic job of fitting important details, one after the other, without much extra I m a fan of scary movies, and I think that Hollywood should consider this book as its next Blockbuster


    27. I read this book during my hyper reading phase and I really really enjoyed it It s an unusal story about the protege of a renowned ivy league professor who sets off for Philadelphia to disprove claims by a wealthy young socialite that she is a medium Enjoyable peek into the spiritualist movement of the early 20th century.


    28. This is a story about 1920 Philadelphia and the strange world of physhic phenomenon,complete with regularly held seances.Elegantly written with strong characters that make the story flow and keeps you guessing right up to the end The novel takes place in Philadelphia which was exciting for me as I am very familar with the area and all the landmarks mentioned.I give this book 5 stars.
